What Does Elder Abuse Look Like?

According to the Nursing Home Abuse Guide, almost 10% of nursing home and assisted living residents experience elder abuse. This is shocking, considering that we are entrusting our loved ones to people who we hope are better capable of caring for them than we are. Elder abuse can be difficult to detect, but if you suspect your loved one’s injuries or death were caused by abuse, you can take legal action with the help of a Florida elder abuse attorney.

Types of Elder Abuse Claims We Handle


Elder abuse can be divided into four categories:

  • Physical: this can include inappropriate restraints as well as physical violence
  • Emotional: humiliating, degrading, terrorizing, intimidating, etc. an elder
  • Sexual: non-consensual sexual contact
  • Financial: often occurs when someone convinces or coerces an elder to provide them with personal information or access to finances, as well as modification of wills

The elderly are often tricked or coerced into these forms of abuse due to weakened physical and mental capacities. Because of elders in nursing homes and assisted living centers are out of your supervision most of the time, abuse can be difficult to identify. One of the best ways you can help protect your loved one is by visiting frequently and ensuring they are being appropriately cared for.


The most common types of Elder Abuse include but are not limited to:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial exploitation
